When Maxo Kream dropped “BIG PERSONA” with Tyler, the Creator back in early September, the Houston rapper gave us a glimpse of what was to come on his new album, WEIGHT OF THE WORLD.
Nearly six weeks later, and WEIGHT OF THE WORLD has officially dropped.
Boasting features from Tyler, A$AP Rocky, Freddie Gibbs and Don Toliver, WEIGHT OF THE WORLD is a 16-song, 44-minute ode to H-Town and Kream’s come up in the streets, and in the studio.
Building on his 2018 record Punken and his 2019 self-titled release, Brandon Banks, Kream puts his development as an artist on full display on every WEIGHT OF THE WORLD track. From the album-opening “CRIPSTIAN” to “MAMA’S PURSE,” Maxo spins a web of street talk, references to designer clothes and Air Jordan sneakers, and his extensive knowledge of hip-hop history.
Tyler, Rocky, Freddie Gibbs and Toliver add a little star power to the project and help give WEIGHT OF THE WORLD the perfect balance between introspectiveness and flexing the fruits of Maxo Kream’s labor.
